SUSSEX, Wis. -- March 28, 2013

Quad/Graphics, Inc. (NYSE: QUAD) (“Quad/Graphics”) has been named Company of
the Year/Gravure Publications in the inaugural Gravure Management Excellence
Awards sponsored by the Gravure Association of the Americas (GAAmericas).
Quad/Graphics also won the Overall Company Growth Award. The awards were a
feature of the GAAmerica’s Gravure Global Summit held in Miami earlier this
month.

Quad/Graphics uses the gravure printing process to print leading consumer
magazines, catalogs and retail advertising inserts. In naming Quad/Graphics
Company of the Year in the Publication category, the GAAmericas awards
committee cited Quad’s continuing commitment to investing in growth and
technology. “Quad/Graphics proved that continued investment pays off in taking
care of customers and its people,” stated Sherré DeMao, head judge for the
awards committee and Director of Marketing & Communications for GAAmericas.
“Areas that impressed the judging committee included Quad/Graphics’ fully
automated Gravure pressroom from engraving to loading through delivery of
signatures; continual investment in process improvements; adopting new
technologies and practices to protect the environment; a consistent
company-wide safety education and awareness program; investment in employees
including its QuadMed primary care clinics; and its extensive industry
involvement and advocacy.”

In its Overall Company Growth Award presentation, the GAA awards committee
noted Quad’s growth through acquisitions, but also praised Quad’s strategies
for growth that include offering an enhanced range of revenue-generating
solutions; expanding vertical expertise; increasing manufacturing flexibility
and efficiencies; extending geographic footprint; and helping customers
realize mailing/distribution savings.

“We are very pleased to be recognized by GAAmericas in those areas that are
critical to our future success as a company and an industry,” said Joel
Quadracci, Chairman, President & CEO of Quad/Graphics. “Finding a better way –
whether it’s how we help our clients maximize the value of their print spend
or how we create an environment for excellence for employees – is at the core
of our vision for redefining our business, transforming our industry, and
creating value for our clients and shareholders.”

Quad/Graphics will be one of 10 companies honored in the spring issue of
GRAVURE magazine, which will be published in early May. According to DeMao,
the Gravure Excellence Awards were established to be the focal point of
recognition at the association’s annual strategic conference, Gravure Global
Summit. Technical excellence will continue to be recognized via the Golden
Cylinder Awards, for which winners will be announced during two events later
in the year: GAAmerica’s Technical Conference in October (gravure specialty
products, packaging and labels) and the Gravure Publication and Premedia
Conference (GPPC) in November.
